  • It's always nice to look out the window
    And see those very first few flakes of snow
    And later on we can go outside
    And create the impression of an angel that fell from the sky
    When February rolss around I'll roll my eyes
    Turn a cold shoulder to these even colder skies
    And by the fire my heart it heaves a sigh
    For the green grass waiting on the other side

    It's always winter but never Christmas
    It seems this curse just can't be lifted
    Yet in the midst of all this ice and snow
    Our hearts stay warm cause they are filled with hope

    It'd be so nice to look out the window
    And see the leaves on the trees begin to show
    The birds would congregate and things
    A song of birth a song of newer things
    The wind would calm and the sun would shine
    I'd go outside and I'd squint my eyes
    But for now I will simply just withdraw
    Sit here and wish for this world to thaw

    It's always winter but never Christmas
    It seems this curse just can't be lifted
    Yet in the midst of all this ice and snow
    Our hearts stay warm cause they are filled with hope

    And everything it changed overnight
    This dying world you brought it back to life
    And deep inside I felt things
    Shifting everything was melting
    Away oh away
    And you gave us the most beautiful of days

    Cause when it's always winter but never Christmas
    Sometimes it feels like you're not with us
    But deep inside our hearts we know
    That you are here and we will not lose hope Writer/s: MATTHEW ARNOLD THIESSEN
